Young John Mudd is a sellsword in service to the Golden Company. He holds the rank of serjeant.[1]

Character and Appearance

Young John has brown skin and wears brown clothes. He decorates his ears with golden coins. John is a brusque man who wields sword and dagger.[2]


Although he is not a young man, John is known as Young John because his father, Old John Mudd, was also a member of the Golden Company.[2] His surname Mudd is of a house that had once loomed large in the histories of the Seven Kingdoms. He may or may not be of House Mudd, as in the free companies a man can call himself whatever he chooses.[3] He may be related to another serjeant in the company, Lorimas Mudd.
